Lovely Hosts, Lovely Overnight Stay - Highly Recommend
I attended a craft course in the area and booked for an overnight stay. The hosts were very accomodating, offering to make me a sandwich when I arrived. If I had pre-arranged food would've been available upon my arrival. The host directed me to both a local supermarket and a pub offering good quality food. My room was comfortable, clean and spacious with all the amenities that I required and desired. There was a lounge where I could've rested and chatted with other guests however I was too tired to make use of this facility. The breakfast was varied, substantial and excellent quality. My breakfast was exactly as I requested. I would highly recommend Grimston House to any travellers to the York area.

Great Place To Stay
A very friendly greeting from Marion (owners were away), who made us feel at home and promptly provided a welcoming cup of tea and scones which we enjoyed in the lounge with a roaring log fire.

Lovely property, well appointed clean rooms. Plenty of parking. Excellent breakfast.

Good friendly pub virtually next door.

House is easy to find and a great location if visiting York.

Xmas Markets Weekend 8/9/10 Dec
Fabulously warm welcome. It was a shame the log fire was not on for the second night in the lounge. Room could be brighter - energy saving bulbs left it a bit dark. New mattress needed as bed sunk below hard wood frame. Breakfast delicious and very accommodating people. Would recommend and stay again some time.

Thank you very much Neil. It was a pleasure having you to stay. I take on board your comments about the fire and funnily enough we deliberated whether or not to light it as it hadn\'t been getting used on the Saturday night over the past weeks, but will do in future just in case. RE the mattress it was a new bed and mattress in in September but maybe I will swap it for a harder one. The room is due to be decorated in January as the current colour drains the light. I do appreciate your comments as we can only do something about glitches if we know about them. Hope to see you again sometime - maybe in the summer to take in the coast and moors too. Regards Paul

Lovely Stay, In A Lovely Setting
Welcoming, warm and homely, everything you need in a bed and breakfast, plus good free parking, which is always a bonus. Great breakfast selection, plus snacks and evening meals are available on request, so no chance of going hungry, especially as homemade cake and biscuits magically appear in your room! We'd happily visit again.

York Minster - Landmark

Distance 5.05 miles (8.08 km)
The magnificent Cathedral in York, known as York Minster is the largest Gothic Cathedral in Northern Europe, renowned for containing the largest collection of medieval stained glass in England. Built in the Early English, Decorated and Perpendicular styles it is a pure classic of the period. Five hundred and eighteen feet in length, it is two hundred and forty one feet wide at the transept and its central tower rises one hundred and ninety eight feet making it the largest lantern tower in Britain. Bede records that a small wooden chapel was built on this site in 627 A.D. for the baptism of Edwin, king of Northumbria. Edwin's successor Oswald enclosed the chapel in stone and dedicated it to St. Peter, as the Cathedral in York has been ever since.
